This is how the republican President Donald Trump is thanking the West Virginian Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. His son Don Trump Jr. is trolling him while backing his Republican Party opponent, West Virginia Attorney General Patt Morrissey.”

Here’s the rest of the story…

On October 5, 2018, John Bowden of the Hill penned the following report, “Trump Jr. slams Manchin over timing of Kavanaugh decision: ‘Real profile in courage’

Excerpts:

“Donald Trump Jr. slammed West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin on Friday (10/5/18) over the Democratic senator’s timing in announcing his support for President Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.”

“The president’s eldest son noted that Manchin’s announcement came moments after Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) signaled her support for Kavanaugh, giving him the necessary votes to win confirmation.”

“A real profile in courage,” Trump Jr. wrote mockingly of Manchin, whom he dubbed a “lyin’ liberal.”

“I bet he had another press release ready to go if Collins went the other way,” Trump Jr. added while calling on followers to support Manchin’s GOP challenger, West Virginia Attorney General Patt Morrissey.”

“Republicans had for weeks put pressure on Manchin, who represents a state President Trump won by 42 points in 2016, to support Kavanaugh. Manchin, who is the only Democrat to support Kavanaugh, was joined by two other Democrats last year in voting for Trump’s first nominee to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.”

Manchin told reporters that he made his decision about Kavanaugh’s nomination Friday morning, but “out of respect” did not issue his statement announcing his decision until Collins delivered her speech.

“I saw that Sen. Collins — I wanted to, out of respect, I wanted to watch her give hers … and then I made my decision and I gave my reasons for my decision,” Manchin said in an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju.

The Senate is slated to hold a final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Saturday (10/6/18), capping off weeks of controversy after multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct stemming from his days in high school and college in the 1980s.

Several GOP senators on Thursday (10/4/18) said the investigation did not corroborate allegations against him, while Democrats blasted the investigation as inadequate.

    • Dear Mary Plumbago,

      I’ve been giving this whole debacle a lot of thought. We lost a battle but not the war. Please encourage everyone you know to get out and vote in Nov. 2018.

      The GOP lawmakers think they won but they didn’t. The truth will come out eventually and how are they going to explain backing the wrong horse when just about everyone tried to warn them. These GOP Grumpy Old Perverts never considered the fall out/ consequences, of what happens if they were wrong about him.

      Chin up! If you believe Dr. Ford, back her by voting.

      Hugs, Gronda
